My wife and I have recently acquired a house in Chesterfield. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Chesterfield?
The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Chesterfield. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers proves to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted.

I own a semi-detached Victorian house in Chesterfield. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking The Royal Bank of Scotland to clarify?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Chesterfield and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
